Canadian truckers struggle against the Trudeau regime

What you need to know

  • Trudeau invokes Emergencies Act

  • Ottawa police Chief resigns

  • GiveSendGo hacked

  • Canadian Provinces reject Trudeau's help

  • Finance Minister freezing protesters financial accounts

  • Mass arrest of protesters + trucker convoy leaders

  • Canadian gvt threatening to confiscate dogs of truckers

The story so far...

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau invoked the Emergencies Act for the first time in Canada's history. This act gives the federal government temporary powers to crack down on ongoing protests against pandemic restrictions. In a press conference on Monday Trudeau said, "It is now clear that there are serious challenges to law enforcement's ability to effectively enforce the law," "It is no longer a lawful protest at a disagreement over government policy. It is now an illegal occupation. It's time for people to go home." So far the federal Emergency Act has been rejected by New Brunswick, Quebec, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba.

The Emergencies Act will give new powers to financial institutions to freeze or suspend an account of an individual or business affiliated with the protests. Under the new act, this can be done without a court order. Deputy Prime Minister and Finance Minister Chrystia Freeland says financial service providers have already frozen accounts of certain individuals. Freeland said that while the government is choosing not to provide more detail about the number of the accounts suspended, “action is being taken and is going to increase” in the coming days.

GiveSendGo, the crowdfunding website used by the Freedom Convoy, was hacked Sunday night and was redirecting to the domain A file was also posted allegedly containing tens of thousands of names of donors to the Freedom Convoy. GiveSendGo quickly corrected the hack after the incident went viral on social media. On Friday, the Ontario government successfully petitioned a court to freeze access to the millions of dollars raised on the website.

Ottawa Police Chief Peter Sloly has resigned according to a senior source close to the situation. Last week, Sloly said that there was "absolutely no" plan to resign as police chief, telling Newstalk 580 CFRA that he "came here to do a job." The resignation comes one day after Prime Minister Justin Trudeau invoked the Emergencies Act.

Freedom Convoy leaders arrested by Canadian Police

Tamara Lich, organizer of the Freedom convoy, was arrested Thursday by Ottawa police. A clip showing Lich being detained by Ottawa police was shared on twitter. In a video shared by Lich Wednesday, she said she expected to go to jail but was not afraid and not deterred. "There's a pretty good chance - well I think it's inevitable at this point - but, uh, I'll probably be going somewhere tomorrow where I'll be getting three square meals a day. And that's OK," Lich said.

Chris Barber, another key organizer of the Freedom Convoy protest, was also arrested in Ottawa on Thursday. Barber, who is a senior convoy leader, is expected to face criminal charges according to the CBC. He has previously said in a press release that politicians have declined to engage in "serious dialogue." These arrests come after Prime Minister Justin Trudeau invoked the Emergencies Act on Monday, which gives the government power to clear protests by towing vehicles, and even freezing personal bank accounts.

Ottawa may euthanize truckers’ pets as punishment

The Ottawa government has warned protesters that their pets may be taken away after their arrest.

Ottawa Humane Society policy is that they may unilaterally euthanize any animal they decide is “not suitable for adoption” as determined by behavioral and health tests.

"Attention animal owners at [the] demonstration. If you are unable to care for your animal as a result of enforcement actions, your animal will [be] placed into protective care for 8 days, at your cost. After 8 days, if arrangements are not made, your animal will be considered relinquished," writes Ottawa-By-Law in a tweet.

Per Rebel News, anyone arrested would have their pet taken from them without their knowledge of consent while they are imprisoned for an "indefinite period of time" via the emergency powers of the Trudeau regime.

The assumption from many is that these animals would be handed over to shelters where pets wait to either be adopted, fostered or euthanized.

Major arrests take place. Media barred from area. Police move in. Parliament axes Friday plans to meet over Emergencies Act amid ‘police operation’

As of Friday February 18, Ottawa police are conducting major arrests across the city. Video of protesters being significantly outnumbered are circulating Twitter. Reporters are also saying Ottawa police are barring them from the area "for their own safety."

"All media who are attending the area, please keep a distance and stay out of police operations for your safety. Anyone found within areas undergoing enforcement may be subject to arrest. There will be a media availability later today at 474 Elgin Street," Ottawa Police say in a tweet.

It is reported that there are over 100 police checkpoints across the city to stop would-be supporters of the convoy protest from coming into Ottawa’s downtown.

Global News also reports that Canada's House of Commons and the Senate will not meet over the implementation of the Emergencies Act. There is also no indication of when the House of Commons will debate the issue, but a vote is still expected to be held some time next week.


FDA Executive caught on camera, unveils Biden annual vaccine plan

What you need to know:

  • FDA executive officer reports plan for annual COVID shot

  • Refers to it as "recurring fountain of revenue"

  • Indicates that Big Pharma buys the approval of regulation bodies

The story so far:

Project Veritas released footage of FDA executive officer, Christopher Cole, explaining Biden’s plan to have annual COVID-19 vaccines become policy.

Cole made these revelations to a journalist with a hidden camera. He described the annual shot as a “recurring fountain of revenue.”

“It might not be that much initially, but it’ll [be] recurring -- if they can -- if they can get every person required at an annual vaccine, that is a recurring return of money going into their company.”

Cole went on to say that Biden wants to “inoculate as many people as possible” and the initiative hasn’t been announced yet as to not “rile everyone up.”

Importantly, Cole noted how Big Pharma buys approval: "The drug companies, the food companies, the vaccine companies, they pay us [the FDA] hundreds of millions of dollars a year to hire and keep the reviewers to approve their products... If they [Big Pharma] can get every person required [to get] an annual vaccine, that is a recurring return of money going into their company."

Leaked Audio: CDC Director Confirms She Won't Relax School Mask Guidance

Leaked audio from CDC Director Rochelle Walensky confirms that the organization has no intention of changing their recommendation that all U.S. schools require students to wear masks. The audio, which was recorded at a closed-door House Energy and Commerce committee briefing, has Walensky saying, "our guidance currently is that masking should happen in all schools right now."


Sandy Hook families reach $73 million settlement with Remington over school massacre

Relatives of the Sandy Hook Elementary School victims reached a $73 million settlement with gun manufacturer Remington.

The settlement comes after a legal battle over how Remington marketed its Bushmaster AR-15-style rifle, the gun that was used to kill 20 students and six teachers in Newtown, Connecticut in December 2012. The victims’ families argued that the gun maker marketed the firearm to “at-risk young men” through “product placement in violent video games.”

Remington has since filed bankruptcy.

Hillary really DID spy on Trump

President Donald Trump was illegally spied on by associates of Hillary Clinton during his campaign. Special counsel John Durham, an investigator on the origins of the RussiaGate hoax, confirmed in a court filing on Friday February 11 that Trump was indeed spied on in order to “delegitimize his election victory and presidency.”

As reported in the Washington Examiner:

“In the filing, which was obtained by the Washington Examiner, Durham said he has evidence that “Technology Executive-1,” known to be former Neustar Senior Vice President Rodney Joffe, worked with indicted Clinton campaign lawyer Michael Sussmann to exploit internet traffic data and access “dedicated servers for the Executive Office of the President of the United States (EOP).” Joffe then “exploited this arrangement by mining the EOP’s DNS traffic and other data for the purpose of gathering derogatory information about Donald Trump,” the filing says.”

“[Joffe] tasked these researchers to mine Internet data to establish ‘an inference’ and ‘narrative’ tying then-candidate Trump to Russia,” he added. “In doing so, [Joffe] indicated that he was seeking to please certain ‘VIPs,’ referring to individuals at Law Firm-1 and the Clinton campaign.”

U.S./Russia stand-off getting worse by the day

What you need to know:

  • U.S. intelligence said Russia would invade Ukraine in massive missile strike

  • Russia claims it has finished its training at Ukrainian border. Will remove troops.

  • U.S. says Russia is adding more troops and is not leaving the area

  • Russia announces it will be testing missiles in nuclear test

  • Tensions are not easing according to sources all over the world

The story so far...

U.S. intelligence claimed that Russia was set to invade Ukraine at any time with a “massive missile blitz and 200,000 troops.”

According to The Sun, the suspected 3am invasion time came and went on February 14. The Kremlin said the claims of an early morning attack were “baseless hysteria” designed to cause tensions in Europe.

On Tuesday February 15, the Russian government allegedly claimed that its military units stationed along the Ukrainian border had completed their “scheduled drills” and would be returning to their permanent bases, along with their armor and weaponry. The United States fired back, saying it doesn’t believe Russia is withdrawing its troops. Instead, U.S. intelligence claims that Moscow has increased its soldiers by 7,000. At this stage, intelligence agencies around the world estimate up to 190,000 Russian troops surround Ukraine.

A Biden official stated that Russia publicly made claims of de-escalation while "privately mobilizing for war."

In the wake of these events, U.S. intelligence officials turned their attention Tuesday to American financial news website, Zero Hedge. They accused the site of “amplifying” Kremlin propaganda.

The officials said Zero Hedge, which has 1.2 million Twitter followers, published articles created by Moscow-controlled media that were then shared by outlets and people unaware of their nexus to Russian intelligence.”

By Friday February 18, the Russian military announced it would be conducting “massive drills” of its nuclear forces. The exercises are expected to take place on Saturday.

Pop Culture

The Super Bowl was a super mess

In case you missed it, the Super Bowl took place on Sunday February 13 in Los Angeles at SoFi Stadium. The Rams won 23 to 20 over the Bengals. But, even I admit (as a non sports fan) - this isn’t the part that got people talking.

The 2022 Super Bowl was full of maskless celebrities - many of whom have pushed mask mandates in the past. LA county, one of the most COVID-restricted areas in the United States, hosted the Super Bowl and KN95 masks were handed out to attendees. Few people were seen wearing them. And some of the biggest non-mask violators were the likes of Ellen Degeneres, LeBron James, Ben Affleck, Charlize Theron, to name a few.

Everyone at SoFi Stadium ages 2 and up were required to wear a mask unless they were eating or drinking. In California, there was a statewide mandate for people to wear masks indoors that ended Tuesday February 15. However, children are still required to wear masks at school.

A particularly notable hypocrite is LA Mayor Eric Garcetti. He was pictured only a short time ago at a Los Angeles Lakers game maskless. When asked about it, he claimed he held his breath during images. In pictures at the Super Bowl, he is seen chatting to other people - once again, maskless. He must be able to hold his breath a long time!
